Research for Agriculture addresses the biggest gaps in agricultural research
- What happens to current agricultural research once it is produced?
- Why do we need to dig so far and wide to find and connect current agricultural research?
So much excellent agricultural research is never seen or shared, often getting buried under the next upload or inside burgeoning storerooms.
Ironically, poor readership impacts research funding, information sharing, policy development and of course the next research project.
Stewarding quality, targeted agriculture knowledge to interested parties requires a brave new world of skills, tools and commitment.
Research for Agriculture was conceived by a team of agriculture communications professionals. Recognising the daily challenge of getting relevant audiences in front of good research, the group built a centralised agriculture ‘research-hub’ model. Partnerships were formed with key industry stakeholders.
Research for Agriculture recognises that scientists and students don’t have the time or interest in pushing their own research through the myriad of communications channels, nor monitoring which research is being read and which is gathering dust. Equally, we understand that communications teams assigned to building audiences are juggling an array of competing demands, making individual attention to every article difficult, if not impossible.
This is where Research for Agriculture can help. While our website is freely available to all agriculture researchers to submit article proposals, those seeking dedicated article marketing and reporting may opt for one of our proactive publishing packages.
Whether you are looking to publish your research or want to quickly find other research relevant to your studies, policies or general interest, we aim for Research for Agriculture to be your first query.
How it works
The key principles in founding Research for Agriculture are that agricultural research:
- must be freely available to everyone
- must be easily found and shared
- warrants proactive propagation
